Spoiler Alert, It does not end well in Infinity War
Infinity War Sequel?
The Avengers 4 movie is tentatively scheduled to be released in May 2019. Anthony and Joe Russo are already on board to direct the next film featuring the super-team of Marvel charters that originally included Iron-Man, Thor, Captain America, and The Incredible Hulk.
Avengers 4 will be produced by Marvel Studios and be the 22nd movie in the MCU. The back-to-back filming with Infinity War ended in January 2018.
Infinity War ended with many question marks that will lead up to the next movie in the series. Thanos is a tyrant from Titan who is trying to collect all of the six Infinity Stones so he can “rebalance” the universe. Towards end of the movie Avengers member Thor wounds Thanos severely but the latter is able to teleport after activating the Infinity Gauntlet. This causes half of life throughout the universe to disappear.
Then during a post-credits scene former SHIELD director Nick Fury sends a signal as he disintegrates. A strarburst symbol on a red/blue background is shown on the transmitter.
Avengers 4 Hype
Fans of the Avengers and Marvel movies in general are thrilled about the untitled “Avengers 4” movie that will hit theatres in less than a year. There are many reasons why super fans are already excited about the film and here are some of the main ones:
The next Avengers movie has already been filmed but lacks a title. One reason is Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige stated in 2017 that the next films after Avengers 4 would be “very different.” Feige also confirmed one reason Avengers 4 still lacks a title is it would be a spoiler for people who have watched Infinity War.
It is also worth noting that the original titles of Avengers 3 and Avengers 4 were Infinity War Part I and Part II, respectively. The change implies a big narrative change will happen in Avengers 4. Marvel’s next films include Guardians Of The Galaxy Vol. 3 and a follow-up to Spider-Man: Homecoming. However, details about the next Avengers movies are still murky.
Another big issue about Avengers 4 is which Marvel characters will appear. Many of the good guys became causalities in Infinity War so there are questions about which characters will appear in Avengers 4. The following characters have been confirmed to appear in the franchise’s next movie:
• Black Panther
• Bucky Barnes
• Captain Marvel
• Scarlet Witch
There are also about a dozen Marvel characters that are rumoured to appear in Avengers 4. This list will likely change during the next year as some become confirmed to get screen time for the Infinity War follow-up. Meanwhile, others will stay on the “rumoured” list.
In the Digital Age, blockbuster movies like Avengers 4 usually have so-called plot leaks leading up to the movie’s release. Sometimes the “leaks” turn out to be partially or fully true. In other cases they’re entirely fake. More plot leaks for Avengers 4 will be likely due to it already being filmed.
That said, fans will not be 100% certain whether certain plot leaks were real or fake until the movie is released in May 2019. The Avengers will certainly launch a fightback against the Titan warlord Thanos. However, the actual events that take place in the superhero movie are still unclear.
Avengers: Infinity War raked in a record-breaking $180 million during its opening weekend. This surpassed Walt Disney Pictures’ previous record of $135 million for the premiere of Finding Dory (2016). It is almost inevitable that Avengers 4 will be another box office hit for Marvel and Disney.
Marvel fandom is anticipating the fourth Avengers movie for various reasons including the title, characters, and plot. All of their questions will be answered in less than a year. The number of days in the countdown still seems like an infinity!
10 Characters Who Need To Appear In The All-Female Marvel Movie
Out of all the rumored Marvel Cinematic Universe projects in the pipeline, an all-female Avengers movie is one of the most exciting. An Avengers squad composed of only female heroes, A-Force is one of the most powerful teams in the Marvel Universe and they are ripe for a big-screen adaptation. Now that the cinematic universe’s roster of female characters has been slowly filling up, it seems like the perfect time to take this team to the big screen. Add to that the fact that both Marvel Studios President Kevin Feige and Valkyrie herself Tessa Thompson have expressed interest in an A-Force movie and it seems like a safe bet.
With Avengers: Infinity War now in theaters, it makes sense for the Marvel Universe to expand their team lineups. Captain America and Iron Man can only entertain audiences for so long, so the Marvel Cinematic Universe needs to add some heroes to keep fans entertained long term.
